50 Cool Guy’s Haircuts

By Rich Krafting


Summer heat means more casual dress from head to toe. For hair, that can translate to shorter cuts, messier styles or down-to-the-skin fades. There are ways to make every hairstyle easier to wear for this busy season.

Short haircuts for men are an obvious way to stay cool while looking good. For a trendy style that is growing in popularity, check out the textured crop. The cut layers thick hair for lots of definition and requires minimal styling.

Slick styles, pomps and combovers will benefit fit from taking the shine level down a notch. Extra sheen can look or get greasy in higher temperatures. In addition, heat and humidity tends to melt higher shine products and reduce their hold while matte products usually stay strong. We’ve got plenty of styles with the same shape but added texture and waves that just look great at work and play.

For haircuts of every length, adding a taper or skin fade flatters every face shape and makes styling a breeze. There are so many variations of the fade, up high, down low or even both. Add a shaved part or hair design for a cool detail.

So check out these pictures of cool guy’s haircuts for a fresh new look.
